|Focusrite Liquid Mix 16 Desktop Controller, 16Ch of Dynamic Convolution
The Liquid Mix 16 FireWire Processor is the latest
product in Focusrite's award-winning Liquid range, bringing the power
of Liquid Mix to an even wider audience. Combining the same pool of
classic EQ and Compressor emulations with a killer control surface,
Liquid Mix 16 brings the sound of the rare, the priceless, and the
historically significant, within reach of even the most modest studio
Each of the audio processor's sixteen mono channels
provides Compressor and EQ emulations selectable from a huge pool of
high-quality vintage and modern day classics. Forty Compressors and
twenty EQs are available straight out of the box, with some additional
emulations available for free online. As with the original Liquid Mix,
a hybrid seven-band 'super EQ' is available in every instance, built
out of separate classic EQ sections. Liquid Mix 16 also offers a 'free'
mode for the compressor. Original compressors with limited or absent
controls suddenly become fully featured - yours to use as you choose.
Each channel appears as a separate VST/AU/RTAS effect within the
sequencer and will work within all major applications, including Pro
The same optional expansion card is available for both Liquid Mix and
Liquid Mix 16. With Liquid Mix 16, the card allows users to increase
the number of available channels at 48kHz from 16 to 24 (sold
Mix uses the same patented Dynamic Convolution process as Focusrite's
other Liquid products. Unlike standard convolution techniques, Dynamic
Convolution utilizes vast processing power to sample the effect of a
classic processor on a series of audio pulses, at many different gain
settings and frequencies. All this processing is done using onboard
DSP, so the processing has a relatively low effect on your computer's
own CPU, (variable subject to the sequencer used). Liquid Mix 16s DSP
is housed within an elegant desktop control solution and connects to
the computer via Firewire, which also provides bus-powering. The
physical metering, rotary controls and buttons from the original Liquid
Mix are provided here. The hardware helps to provide a tactile
ergonomic solution, placing the sounds of an array of classic
processors at your fingertips. You can choose to control each channel
either from the desktop control unit, or from within the sequencer or
an alternative controller, using the same simple GUI from Liquid Mix,
which functions exactly like a plug-in.
The Liquid range of
products has won in excess of twenty awards to date, becoming a
worldwide hit in the audio production world, from project studios to
post production and broadcast facilities, not to mention the Live
arena. Focusrite looks forward to bringing Liquid technology to a
growing audience, providing the sound of vintage processing and the
reliability of digital processing to studios the world over.
